-- spblt for three weeks later. 20 days past the september 11th attacks and fbi isn't in benghazi, they're in tripoli, for security reasons they say, they say that the libyan security forces aren't providing them with security and some sort of visa problem. this is unheard of. so, senator bob corker and joe lieberman among others, they want answers from clapper about why it's happening. >> dave: to the point at that tony schaeffer made on our program yesterday, he's worked with the fbi, some of the toughest and highly technically trained individuals on the planet. comfortable going into hostile zones like benghazi, it must not be an internal reason, it must be someone else they can't go in. >> clayton: bee seeds the tactffac tactffac fact-- besides the fact that libya is a free country and not the hot son that-- as it's unfolding and discussions about james clapper on the show this morning, who is james clapper we'll taking a look at his record. he made headlines in 2010 when asked about that london terrorist attack by diane sawyer and appeared he didn't know what had happened or unfold
been saying all week. >> we are at the very early stages of an fbi investigation. the teams from the fbi reached libya earlier this week, and i will advise congress also that i am launching an accountability review board that will be chaired by ambassador thomas pickerring. >> clearly a terrorist attack. but exactly who perpetrated it is the question. >> we went through a very exhaust i have effort to try to take those prisoners at gitmo and to rehabilitate them. but we have seen instances, both in iraq and afghanistan, and for that matter pakistan, where former detain s have been involved in planning and executing attacks against americans abroad. >> on the issue of -- with libya today, it is stunning the lack of coordination between the intelligence community and the state department. >> what do we know? we know it was a terror attack. it was planned two or three days in advance. we knew it had nothing to do with the video. we know our ambassador was tortured now before he was killed. >> what we do know is that the natural protests that arose because of the outrage over the vid
information we have at present. first of all, there's an fbi investigation that's ongoing. and we look to that investigation to give us the definitive word as to what transpyred. but putting together the best information we have available to us today, our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi in fact was initially a spontaneous reaction to what transpired hours before in cairo, almost a copycat of the demonstrations against our facility in cairo which were prompted of course by the video. >> there was a caveat there. she said the fbi was still investigating. but the thought was it was a spontaneous reaction. a couple of days before that, the libyan president said, no, in fact, al qaeda was behind this attack. and then days later, after ambassador rice is on this program and other programs, the president's spokesman jay carney says this. it is, i think, self-evident that what happened in benghazi was a terrorist attack. well, if it was self-evident, why didn't the president call this exactly what it was, an act of terror on the anniversary of 9/11? >> well, this is an eve
. the cia took off and got out of there the next day. we were told by susan rice the fbi's investigating. the fbi has never gone in to banghazi. this is 15, 16 days later. that tells you banghazi is an utterly unsafe city. you know, it's al-qaedaville, if you will, if the fbi can't go into the consulate and investigate. barack obama is saying we've won the war against al-qaeda, we're winning the war, they're in retreat, all the rest of it. if al-qaeda is that strong in banghazi, the libyan government can't deal with this thing, what did we liberate there? al-qaeda is in the arabian peninsula, it's in anbar province, it's in libya, it's in pakistan. the main one, and hillary clinton just referred to it today, take a look at northern mali. it's the size of france. the affiliate of al-qaeda has taken over the place entirely. she seemed to suggest the attack might have originated there. right next door an american general has been in there. they're talking about a 3,000-man army to invade that area. what's at stake is obama's entire middle east policy and all this -- you know, queue sama is
is not a terror attack. they sent f.b.i. investigators and they think it was reaction as you know as we are talking today to that film on youtube. >> gretchen: benjamin netanyahu is talking about sunday football . do we have the clipp now? this is in steve's video bank. >> steve: yes. >> brian: realize was two on one. and i was numerically challenged. mr. 1: i was the ref there. >> brian: that was the launchh and we ran the drills. and i predicted success for the league. >> steve: i forget what the occasion was when they were here. to launch or a promotional event. >> brian: i happening the promotional event took place because we launched the league. i predicted success and one day big are than nfl. >> gretchen: does the meaning why they were here. >> steve: historical. >> brian: more jobs for people. putting people back to work. >> steve: stimulus. >> gretchen: coming up on the show, a little boy could lose his side from a di detergent pods. >> steve: 33 soldiers murdered by green on blue attacks this year alone . so how has the pentagon responded? by blaming the troops. we'll tell you

an fbi agent, i get to look at all of that. i come to a different conclusion. they are only moderately confident that it was a spontaneous event because there are huge gaps in what we know. >> shannon: it was all about u.s. foreign policy on fox news sunday. i sat down with chris wallace for more on his interviews with dr. susan rice and the house intelligence chair, mike rogers. chris, it is all about what happened in foreign pm's this week. you had the ambassador to the u.n., dr. susan rice, to talk about the administration's position on what may have sparked what we saw play out in the middle-east. >> it is intk because jay carney, the white house spokesman said it on friday and ambassador rice backed it up, reinforced it, doubled down on sunday. they say that all of this unrest across the middle-east is all about that video that came out, this obscure video that insults the prophet muhammad, they say it has nothing to do with anti-american feelings and u.s. policies. there are an awful lot of people who question that, but that's the position of the administration. >> shannon: you t
with the f.b.i. that may have been able to do something about this. greg, you talk about, the day that 9/11 happened they were dancing in streets, i found to be outrageous. and -- >> greg: no one questions the root causes for their idiocy. not much time on campuses are spent on discussing being justices, only if the injustice is perpetrated by the united states. >> eric: there are verses in quran that con dom condone jiha. nonbelievers killing them. that is a sign to allah you are doing the right thing. that is cause of islamics extremist. >> andrea: you got upset with me earlier because i brought up something off-topic but i think it was related. we spend time not thinking about september 11. but we talk a lot about debt and deficit. the reason we were able to be successful to this point is we have money to be strong, to fund this. when we waste it on stupid things we can't be strong. we can't have a strong military. so, all of this is related. our financial security has directly related to the national security. i know we took a day offer of politics today. >> dana: well, for now. at t
or 37 times. >> bob: that is right. snoop on me one night. >> dana: f.b.i. agent. >> bob: there is nothing wrong with snooping if you get away with it. >> andrea: have you snooped on a woman? >> bob: hell, yes. >> andrea: find anything good? >> bob: the diaries. >> andrea: what did they write? >> bob: about former boyfriends. >> greg: you snoop on craigslist. >> bob: days gone by. >> andrea: dana? >> dana: i have a boring situation, because i never even -- i don't know -- no. no. i feel boring. >> greg: you snoop on your dog. when your dog leaves. jasper. >> andrea: eric? you're a father of a teenage son. so do you snoop on your son? >> eric: here is the thing. you can't call it snooping, because that wouldn't work. the best thing to do is let him or her know you will look and watch the facebook page and look through the phone. i remember one time -- well, i had his phone here by accident. took his phone. look through the pictures. you don't find anything but the kids need to know you are looking. >> greg: by the way, we were just watching n my basement -- watching in my
concerns, the f.b.i. is investigating. former u.n. ambassador told fox news megyn kelly today the content of the stevens' journal may expose, "a failing in the overall approach to the region." >> but i'm sure that if he believed that security was a problem, he would have informed the state department diplomatic security bureau. they would have made a threat assessment and should have taken the necessary steps. the fact that he and three other americans were killed by definition shows there was a massive failure of security. >> at first, cnn only cited an individual familiar with stevens' thinking. a few days later, anderson cooper disclosed the existence of the journal. enter felepe reynes, aide to hillary clinton. he told cnn they lack humanity to fail to allow assurances to the stevens family to return the journal promptly and not report on personal details. cnn executives dispute that. now enter hastings for buzzfeed.com facing his best known for an article he wrote for "rolling stone" magazine a couple of years back that resulted in the firing of generally stanley mcchrystal. hastings
, osama bin laden. who knows what? eric shaun is with us. eric, i know you have a lot of sources at the f.b.i. and other agencies like that. what can you tell us? >> i apologize for being out of breath 'cause i was walking down fifth avenue, which is close to our studios and i heard a jet, perhaps a 737 or a small air bus, flying low, unusually low over fifth avenue making a right. i'm not going to -- i don't have any reports on what type of plane hit the world trade center. but people looked up and it made a right toward the building. >> tragedy, it is abhorrent, it is disgusting, but i'm wondering, are these pilots, terrorists themselves? are there terrorists in the cockpit who are holding guns to a pilot's head? >> i can't imagine -- >> you can speculate completely about how this happens because ob lot of training and expertise to fly a complicated, sophisticated aircraft l it's a boeing 737 or a smaller air bus. these are not little cessnas and little pipers. so you have to wonder and raise what possibility there is with the type of scenario that was going on in the cockpit. >> our wende
yesterday. the f.b.i. is in libya assisting local authorities investigating what happened at that consulate and they're searching for those responsible. in indonesia and pakistan, protesters clashing with police, and elsewhere after friday prayers. muslim leaders called for calm, but the flag burning and anti-american chants continue. protesters set fire to two movie theaters and a toll booth. police responding with tear gas and batons and the security has been beefed up at embassies across the region with more -- the possibility of more protests ahead. guys. >> gretchen: rick leventhal live in jerusalem, thank you. >> eric: let me point something out. a lot of the reason why it was the movie and it has been the movie is because a couple of weeks ago at the dnc, at the convention down there, joe biden said it, i'm not sure if president obama said it or not, but it was you ared quite a few times, osama bin laden is dead and gm is alive. a lot of this protest is at least what we're reading, is in response to the victory lap that the administration is taking for killing bin laden. so if you at
and keep going at it. no one believes it because it's not true. >> how can he he know that? fbi teams are just arriving in libya. the investigation is underway. we know that they were armed -- the attackers at least in lib afterthe embassy were armed with rocket propelled grenades, you pick those up as you are heading toward the protest? >> you are exactly right. the white house has a handle on the intent of the attackers? they have no clue. common sense tells you it's bigger than a video. >> the problem is it goes to the rationale of the obama candidacy four years ago which was total condemnation of the bush policy. total condemnation of our position, especially in the muslim world. so the president, president obama preached empathy, preached an association based on his past and his education and based upon where he grew up and said, listen, i understand you. now the muslim world has rejected it and, in some ways, rejecting not only america but the obama presidential handout. >> that is certainly charles krauthammer's theory. he was on "special report" last night. >> this has nothing
the fbi is trying to resolve is how and when they learned of the annex. glen daugherty and tyrone woods were killed there in an attack that was even better equipped and more sophisticated on the first wave. >> people on the ground have seen the fragments. the remains of the mortars and the heavy weapons that were used. >> we have made clear that there were armed assailants who used heavy weapons. >> i just don't think that people come to protest equipped with rpg's and other heavy weapons. >> president obama was first briefed about the benghazi attack about 90 minutes after it began. what has emerged since then, however, from the missed opportunities to redress the inadequate security to the deaths involved and the geopolitical ramifications of the event up to and including the shifting accounts of it put forward by the administration is the dawn of a major foreign policy scandal. one, alisyn, dave, and clayton, that will be investigated and dissected in hearings and official proceedings for years to come. back to you guys in new york. >> will it be an issue now with 45 days left before
